Have you ever noticed that people just seem to take you in the wrong way? No matter how nice you are they still seem to judge you, right?
If this is happening you might just have a personality that is too strong for them to truly understand. They may not quite see you as you are, but you should never change yourself to fit the expectations of others. You should continue to be who you are unapologetically.
Below I am going to go over some of the more common signs that might indicate this is in fact what you are going through. Sometimes people misunderstand us and it isn’t always our fault. Once they truly get to know you they will understand that they were the ones who were being too critical too quickly.
7 Signs You Have a Personality That Others Don’t Know How To Take:
1. You’re a very honest person.
Right off the bat when you meet someone you aren’t going to be fake. You are open and honest the whole way. Sometimes this, in the beginning, can be ‘too much’ for others to really take in.
2. You do not partake in gossip.
While most people love gossip you don’t. You are not going to stand around and talk about things that don’t have anything to do with you or the person you’re talking to. This makes people assume you are being rude or that you don’t like them, but of course, that most of the time isn’t the case. Whether you mean to be a bit off-putting or not letting someone know you aren’t interested in gossip might help.
3. You are basically fearless.
You might have some fears but you don’t let them affect you. When something happens you take the time to really think it through and go forward whether you are afraid or not.
4. You can stay chill in tough situations.
When someone is not quite close to us they don’t really understand how we process things. This meaning if a tough situation occurs the way we handle it can be taken the wrong way. For instance, when we should look upset we seem fine and they think we’re basically assholes.
5. You have no patience with ignorant people.
When it comes to ignorance you cannot deal. This is great for you because you are not surrounding yourself with ignorant people but for those who are ignorant you come off as a dick and they just can’t ‘stand you.’ Once you give them a chance and things go south there is no second chance.
6. You don’t let your insecurities get the best of you.
You come off as fake or self-absorbed sometimes because you don’t let your insecurities rule your life. You might be insecure about your body but you overcome that insecurity by working through it. Other people won’t know how to take this especially if they don’t know how to work through their insecurities.
7. You don’t seek attention.
If you aren’t someone that seeks attention others might assume you don’t care what others think. While it is great to not care what others think it makes you come off as a jerk to newcomers. That being said, this is something they will just have to get over.
If these things sound like you then yes, you do have a personality that most people won’t know how to take. This is not a bad thing and you damn sure don’t need to change a thing. In the end, if someone is supposed to be in your life they will take the time to get to know you.
